This month, exciting refurbishment works are underway at Kiveton Park Library and Neighbourhood Hub. These works are part of Labour’s library plan putting extra investment into every library across Rotherham.
The investment at Kiveton Park Library will see redecoration take place – from new shelving and carpets – and a new flexible meeting space for local community groups as well. There will also be a brand new reception facility and a new catering kitchen to help deliver courses and demonstrations in the library.
Labour’s Cllr Dominic Beck, local councillor for Wales Ward, has welcomed this exciting work at the library and said:
“It’s great that our local library in Kiveton will be undergoing these exciting refurbishment works.
“Our libraries are such important community spaces and we recognise that with this extra funding in Rotherham’s libraries.
“These improvements are thanks to our extra Labour investment in all of our libraries across the borough.”
The improvement works at Kiveton Park Library come from the libraries strategy approved by Labour councillors earlier this year. This is a £7 million investment package in all 15 libraries across the borough. Under these plans, investment will be made in all of Rotherham’s libraries helping to fund refurbishment, new equipment and other exciting works.
The building works at Kiveton Park Library started earlier this month and it is expected to take 10 weeks to complete. The library will be looking to reopen in November 2020.
